Golden Eagle Pumpkin Patch

To go along with the beautiful weather we experienced today, Southern Miss Gulf Park Campus opened their Golden Eagle Pumpkin Patch.
From now until Halloween, you and the family can head out to the Gulf Park Campus and pick out some pumpkins for the holidays and even receive a free picture. Pumpkins of all sizes will be on sale from 50 cents to $35.
Dr. Heidi Lyn with USM tells News 25 all proceeds will help benefit the university’s association of office professionals and the comparative cognition and communication lab. “We work at the Humane Society and we work with various animals at different zoos and facilities and we’re looking at how intelligent animals are, how they communicate with people and all that kind of stuff. My graduate students often don’t have funding for equipment or to travel to present at conferences and things like that. This will help support those things.”
On Saturday, the university will also hold a kids’ costume contest at 11:30 a.m. and will have a professional photographer on site.
